The Great Blackout of 2005  
Well I feel that today deserves to be commemorated in LJ. Today began at 8:00, when the Megs knocked on my door to tell me that the power was on the fritz. Which was shortly followed by the power going out entirely, leaving Bundy in an semi-eerie darkness. This was shortly followed by the best idea ever. Meg ever so subtly suggested we ditch our first classes and head to IHOP for breakfast. It was so much fun to trek out to New Lot, avoiding the downed power lines and head for the relative freedom of the road to Utica. We ate the biggest, most increadible breakfast (I got the chocolate chip pancakes and bacon. And hot chocolate. In my hair.), annoyed the other customers by laughing too loudly, and generally had fun. On a weekday morning. I knooow.

And the blackout gods were truly gracious, as my 10:30 class was cancelled, giving me time to study for Japanese and kick ass at days of the month. It felt really good to kick some Japanese ass, and counteracted the discouragement of getting my test back. Plus, I only have 2 pages of worksheets for Planetary Geo tonight! *shock*

It 's been a good day. ^_^

I am SOOOO jealous. My blackout day consisted of an untoasted PB&J sandwich for breakfast, the most boring econ class ever, and an anatomy test. ::shakes fist::
